"NTOW THAT our college days are over 

And we think of the years gone by, 
Each will recall the tears and laughter 
While leaving with a sigh. 
And in our years we've spent at college 
(We've chosen well in thee.) 
We'll always remember our days at S.T.C. 

And as we travel on Life's highway, 

We'll keep our faith with you 

Striving in all our words and actions. 

As you would have us do. 

May we always do you honor 

And win our fame for thee. 

We'll always remember our days at S.T.C. 


To flip Class of 1945 

"^7*OUR COLLEGE years have been war years, from Pearl Harbor in your 
freshman year to these senior days when the final victory in Europe comes 
nearer and nearer. Soon you will go out to live in a world where all the roots 
of our living have been disturbed by war. Ahead are the reconstruction days 
of Peace. There will be change and new ways of life. We hope the college has 
given you some of the Eternal Verities which change not and which will serve you 
as standards of value and guides in what would otherwise be confusion and chaos. 

Knowledge will always conquer ignorance and superstition. Right answers 
come only through reason — never through prejudice. You are strong when 
you maintain your own intellectual honesty. Bitterness and hate will ever be 
beaten by love and human sympathy. 

As teachers, you work with children and youth in building the new world in 
the faith that every new generation renews the hope of humanity. May your lives 
be full of the deep satisfaction which comes from living for great causes. 

The world needs and awaits you.

/^"\NLY a tiny plant you tell us? 
^"^ Meant to cover buildings and no more? 
Just a bit of vegetation? 
Small? — Unimportant? — Little-remembered? 

Perhaps so — 

But wait, listen to my story! 

A simple tale of simple people — 

I call it, "The Plant of Inspiration." 

Midnight! — 

Not calm as in our land but shattered by the sounds of war, 

The frightening sounds of man-made hell. 

The drone of planes; the scream of bombs; 

The red of fire; the thunderous blast! 

The passing of the planes — 

A cry a call then, silence. 

Dawn. — 

A scene of devastation. 

Ghosts of buildings, 

Craters in the earth. 

An humble cottage left in shambles. 

Only a part of an old wall left. 

But there mid the dirt, and the dust, and the ashes, 

A tiny plant clinging and growing still! 


Only a plant — Unnoticed — 

But wait! — 

See! Over there — a woman approaches, 

Picking her way over dangerous ground. 

Searching and sobbing for a loved one — for someone, 

For a living something on this desolate ground! 

Suddenly she sees the tiny plant. 

"Thank God," she breathes, "I'm not alone." 

This little plant is still alive, — 

And if so small a plant can live — 

I too can live I will go on I must!" 

She lifts her eyes to Heaven. Her lips move in silent prayer 
And she continues on her way with head held high. 

Only a tiny plant you tell us — 

This bit of green we plant today. 

Small, unimportant, little-remembered — 

I wonder 

We'd like to think that in some little way 
Our ivy may some day, in years to come, 
Give just one man that little extra something 
To make him raise his eyes to Heav'n again. 
And we will know we've planted here today 

More than a plant 

We've planted Inspiration. 

Ruth Sullivan 



TODAY we planted a sprig of ivy. From this tiny plant will grow a strong and 
sturdy vine, a vine which will grow ever upward and outward, a vine which 
will cling ever tenaciously to this solid wall. 

Should we observe this bit of ivy during any winter to come it would look 
brown and brittle and all but dead, but experience has taught us that with a new 
spring will come new life, renewed vigor and further growth. Yes, flowing 
through the veins of that winter blighted plant will be the slow-moving but vital 
life blood which patiently awaits the encouragement of spring sunshine and 

The life pattern of our ivy is one of alternating periods of growth and dorm- 
ancy with an ever-present and constantly flowing undercurrent of life connecting 
them. If we were to follow the course of education through the ages, how closely 
its pattern would resemble that of the ivy! We would find in its development 
alternating phases of advance and stagnancy but beneath the surface we find man's 
determination that education remain a vital and growing force. 

Man's desire to fathom the unknown, whether it be the physical or mental 
world, has always been tremendously strong, has always been a powerful incentive 
to investigation. Acting upon this incentive, man has accumulated a large body 
of knowledge which he has made a part of his very life. His science has in- 
creased his physical comfort and health; it has drawn the parts of his world to- 
gether with ties of communication and transportation. His social sciences by 
uncovering many of the experiences of the past have offered lessons for the future. 
His psychology has made man himself more understandable. His sociology has 
made the relations of one man to another less obscure. His philosophies have 
disclosed the almost infinite ranges his mind can reach. Having made all his 
discoveries so much a part of him, man has found it necessary to transmit these 
discoveries to the younger generation. Here it is that education is given its 
impetus; here it is that it takes root; herein lies man's determination to keep educa- 
tion a vital and growing force. 

Once a thing is rooted it begins to grow, and as it grows, many of the char- 
acteristics which it develops come as the result of the environment. Our ivy 
plant, once rooted, will begin to grow and should we observe its growth we shall 
find that it has been affected by the contour of the wall, by the foundation over 
which it spreads. 


Education has developed in much the same way; it has reflected the basic 
philosophy of the people. Its development has been channelled along certain 
lines in keeping with the prevailing philosophy. The Athenians admired a 
beautiful body and a well-developed and fertile mind and they educated their 
young men in such a way as to develop well-rounded individuals. The Romans 
wanted a politically minded citizenry and they educated for that purpose. Dur- 
ing the Middle Ages emphasis was placed upon religion, upon the life after death 
and as a result of this emphasis education was of a decidedly religious character. 
Today, in the United States, we stress the rights of the individual and what is 
perhaps more important we stress the duties and responsibilities of the individual 
in a democratic society. Our schools, in keeping with our philosophy, also 
stress these rights and privileges, these duties and responsibilities. 

In the course of history wars have inflicted their deadly destructive forces 
upon man and all his aspirations, leaving them quite barren, leaving them drained 
of much of their freshness, buoyancy, and go-forwardness, leaving them apparent- 
ly lifeless as the blasts of winter leave the ivy brown and brittle and lifeless. 

If we look at the world today we can see just such a destructive force at work. 
How can man educate the youth for the future when at present all his energies 
and even his life are being sacrificed to the so-called God of War? How can the 
youths themselves be educated when they find so much of upheaval and destruction 
in their lives, when their energies have so little chance for expression in the 
constructive and the positive? We might well ask ourselves, how can man endure 
the hardships and uncertainties of war? How can he withstand the blight and 
ravages of war? 

Blighted as the ivy appears it still holds the very essence of life within its 
veins. Blighted as man seems, he still holds within himself the very essence of 
life and hope and the desire for a better world. Yes, wars may seem to stop man 
for a time; he may even seem to go backward taking with him all his educational 
advances. But there inevitably comes a time as certainly as spring follows winter 
when man will again go forward, aspiring ever upward and outward, purged by 
the blasts of war of much that was destructive and detrimental. 

Yes, as the ivy clings tenaciously to its wall so education clings tenaciously 
to its basic foundation in the good and in the hope of life. 

Etta Burghardt 



A Senior Looks Muck 

ALTHOUGH distance and time will cast a faint mist over remembrances 
there will be some name, or perhaps a chance meeting, a familiar tune, or 
even a remembered giggle and then one of the eleven of the Class of '45 will look 
back — Four short years of laughter, work, struggle and fun will pass in re-view — 

Out of the mist rise twenty-three trembling freshmen entering the portals of 
S.T.C., well supplied with enough material to take the intelligence and academic 
tests placed before them. Those were scarcely over when the seemingly over- 
whelming prospect of the freshman initiation was upon them. Each green tender- 
foot found herself marching through the halls as questionable examples of beauty. 
But their chance to show initiative and ability as well as their opportunity to 
reciprocate for the initiation soon appeared on the horizon. On October 29th 
came the hilarious Halloween party with the gym decorated in a harmonious 
array of cornstalks, pumpkins, and colored paper and the tunnel most gruesomely 
equipped. As this first phase of college life flew by, came the big splurge 
on which the treasury was completely exhausted. The S.S. - 45, a nautical ad- 
venture complete with even the gangplank, was considered "The" dance of the 

After a too brief pause the passing parade of 42-43 continues with only 
thirteen of the original participants. The first episode in this review of the high 
spirited sophomores was the initiation of the newly arrived sprouts at S.T.C. 
The highlight of this year was the entrancing "Fall Fantasy", which turned out to 
be every student's fondest memory. In March rugged individuals as in a fairy 
tale turned from industrious (?) students into producers of a hilarious and some- 
what gigantic minstrel production with the colored endmen providing much of 
the fun — But that pleasant adventure, too, passed into the distance and with it 
the memories of the sophomore year. 


Our parade now continues and we see our third year passing before us. The 
center of attention was shifted to a new site. Mark Hopkins School was the 
chosen locality. Voices, faint whispers at first, rose to loud shouts inquiring as to 
registers, lesson-plans and other novel terms — but with trepidation we took our 
turns at teaching and hoped for the best. Sky-scrapers mingled with mountains, 
for in compliance with the project method a highly enjoyable excursion to New 
York took place in connection with a sociology course and under the direction 
of Miss Boyden. The town had never been toured so fast. However, it must be 
admitted that the sociological values ran a close second to the social values. This 
part of the parade will perhaps always stand out most clearly. A re-view within a 

re-view The occasion was the 50th anniversary depicting life of former college 

days given for the benefit of those who lived them. And with this event another 
episode has passed. 

The grand finale of our passing parade comes slowly into focus. But how can 
it be reviewed — so short and yet so crammed with important activity, with only 
eleven to undertake the work of hundreds. . .Advancing into the foreground is 
one of the biggest successes of the year, The Senior Medicine Show. Has anyone 
ever found out who Dr. Glouscester was? Another laugh of the year was the 
senior version of the Christmas Mummers play. It couldn't be more originally 
done. The big event which none will ever forget was the production of the year- 
book — Again it is proved that the Class of '45 can work together to produce the 

So the years pass in misty re-view but not more quickly than they did in reality. 
Our passing parade has ended. Reluctantly our college days have left us and now 
the time has come when we shall always have to look back for our college fun.

House Council 

Rules of Conduct 

1942 — It is to be understood that during study hours Taconic Hall girls are to 
study. Miss Golden shall make fifteen minute visits to the rooms of fresh- 
men who fail to understand this. 

1943 — Miss Reynolds, our new matron, shall see to it that no notebook is soiled 
in attempts to catch bats. Also, she shall distribute instructive literature 
to any girl seized with the wretched habit of smoking. 

It shall be the duty of the House President to hold a meeting for the purpose 
of instilling patriotism in the hearts of our girls by organizing dances for 
the servicemen at Williamstown. 

1944 — The Council sees fit to inaugurate a spirit of comradeship among the girls. 
Thus it orders that all girls for no more than one hour a day rally in either 
the kitchen or halls for a Clean-Up Festival. At this time, the president 
shall see to it that no girl in her enthusiasm strains herself in rallying. 

1945 — The Council sees its responsibility in a new light: to make plain the rules 
of the House and to make it simpler to obey them. 

Every girl is to bring in, dead or alive, any human being she encounters 
that faintly resembles a cook. 

Christmas parties, dorm dances and Thursday night dinners are to be 
enjoyed with as much downright fun as possible. 

The House Council has the power to enforce the above rules.

A Better Informed Student Bodj 
Keynote of Current Events Club 


by S. T. C. 
Special to "The Re-View" 

North Adams, June 10 — The Current 
Events Club has always endeavored 
to create an active interest in con- 
temporary affairs. During the past 
four years its varied programs have 
succeeded in stimulating more in- 
terest and have thus benefited not 
only the club itself but the whole 
student body as well. 

As early as 1942 there began a 
trend which the CEC still reflects — 
"every member a working mem- 
ber". For the good of the non- 
members maps were displayed at 
convenient locations and assem- 
blies were presented. 

The Club's activity program 
broadened in 1943 to include out- 
side speakers, while 1944 brought 
new approaches to presenting im- 
portant information to the stu- 

dents. Two movie programs were 
offered, reflecting the trend to- 
ward education through the med- 
ium of the screen. A mock session 
of Congress quite adequately cover- 
ed the issue of the "soldiers' 
ballot" question. 

In the school year of 1945 the 
Presidential election held the fore- 
front. A debate, "Resolved, that 
Roosevelt should be reelected" 
was decided in favor of Dewey but 
a well-planned straw vote followed 
the nation in its choice of Roose- 

Weekly bulletin boards and a 
radio panel discussion completed 
the activities for the year. The 
Current Events Club, leaving be- 
hind it a creditable past, now looks 
to the future.

Time: 4 years

ACT 1—1942 

President Colburn: Our gay and gamely group glorified itself with the gloomy 
but great Greenfinger, gleaming another glittering gem to gleam in our galaxy of 
successes, gaining for us, generous but genuine glorification. 

ACT 11—1943 

President Molloy: The neighboring navy, which necessitates motivation, now be- 
comes the nucleus of our attention. We nobly neglect our yearly play to neatly 
carve a niche in their nautical hearts. Our novel entertainments were numerous, 
aptly displaying our versatility. 

ACT III— 1944 

President Morrison: My talented troupe tirelessly presented two timely short but 
tantalizing plays — Until Charlotte Conies Home and Girls Must Talk. Our efforts 
were then directed toward the trip to New York, which topped all other turnouts. 

ACT IV— 1945 

President Conroy: The banners of the bygone, we believe, are well-balanced by 
our brilliant and bewitching Brief Music. Not wishing to bask or brood, how- 
ever, over the success of our play, we musily budded forth with another success, 
a broadcast, going beyond our bounds and broadening our fame.

(ike Chih Sonata-Form 

Exposition: In harmony with the time and occasion the Glee Club and Choir 
have waltzed and 4-4 timed through several seasons. We have sung animato 
at our socials, legato at our concerts and a tempo over the radio and before club 

Development: Our harmony is heard yearly at the Christmas pageant. We 
vocalized at several high schools in the surrounding towns making them STCNA- 
conscious. Greatest joy of all was swinging through the North Adams social 
circles in a glory of trailing notes. Our peak of the season is always our concert 
given in the spring. Our invitation to broadcast over the Pittsfield and Troy 
radio stations is further evidence of our musical maturity. In these various 
measures we have made ourselves heard, keeping in tempo with the seasons and 
the needs which have arisen. 

Recapitulation: So passing from phrase to phrase we have sung our way prestissimo 
through the years with an air of success. May the Glee Club never reach a final

Editors Acknowledgement 

AS EDITOR of the yearbook, I wish to express my graditude to all those who 
helped to make our yearbook a success. I am especially grateful to Mr. 
Luddy, who helped us throughout the making of the book, and to Miss Underhill, 
who gave us literary advice. I wish to give special thanks to the student body, 
who cooperated with us in every way and without whose aid we could never have 
published a yearbook. 

I extend my appreciation to the North Adams Camera Club and to Mr. Pippin 
of the Excelsior Printing Company for their kind and patient assistance. In- 
cluded in my debt of graditude are those merchants who helped support our book 

To the members of the staff, which included the entire class, I wish to give 
public recognition of their invaluable cooperation, which has meant so much to 
me and the success of our yearbook.
